Rocky Mountain Chalets
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We were a little disappointed with the chalets firstly because it is basically a mobile home park in a field with each unit not much more than a demountable building. So dont be expecting an alpine chalet. Also we really struggled to keep the unit warm at night with the air conditioner running flat out, which I would have thought was essential for the location. But the rooms were large and clean, the kitchen well appointed and it was quiet at night. Probably well suited to families and large groups of skiers but not if you are looking for quality or boutique style accomodation.

Room Tip: The park fronts the main road so ask for a unit at the back

super comfy, big rooms, warm, great range of movies, nice hot spas, the perfect place to ski from and when the weather turned rainy, it was great to snuggle down and stay warm. Only a couple of hundred metres flat walk from tow, very friendly managers, it was perfect for our family.

Room Tip: maybe try and get one away from the main road, not that it kept us awake as our bedrooms were at the...

Start to finish this was a great trip!
Chalets were amazing, a real home away from home. We travelled with our 2 children, so the spacious chalet was just what we needed. Very clean with comfortable beds, lovely kitchen, dining and living/lounge area.
The weather was no good for heading up the mountain, but the 2 spa pools and DVD selection available kept the kids busy.
Would highly recommend and we will definitely be going again soon! 10/10 for Service.

We stayed here one night on our annual ski trip. It was close to Ohakune and easy to find. The unit was clean and we were lucky to have a great view of the mountain. Nice big kitchen and the kids loved the spa pool that is available as part of the complex. Would stay again.

My wife and I spent a week at Rocky Mtn Chalets in one of the 2 bedroom apartments. The facilities were great - a home away from home. Plenty of room, very neat and tidy with the use of a full kitchen.
The heated spa was fantastic - just what was needed after a day on the slopes.
Bob and Corinne were very helpful and welcoming and always up for a chat. We'll definitely be coming back

Enjoyed our short break in Ohakune. Chalets were spacious, clean and comfortable with all the comforts of home (including having to empty your own rubbish at the end of the stay!). Friendly hosts. Would highly recommend. Close to the town centre.

Stayed at these Chalets over the Queens birthday weekend with my partner and a couple of friends. The state of the Chalets were prestige and it fit all of our likings, from beds, to kitchen, to the communal spas and dvd selections. We have talked about going back to the Chalets later in the next month! It was so peacefully, and it really felt like home. The chalets were roomy, and it was comfortable. It was especially great waking up to see Mt Ruapehu every morning!! It is such a good value of money and we will definitely be going back soon!
